A New Year

Yeah, so I posted two other posts in the new year. But they weren’t really in the spirit.

Most bloggers do a “best of 2014”, but my little corner of the internet doesn’t attract/warrant nearly that much attention.

So I thought, since this blog is mainly for my own amusement and education, why not highlight some of my favorites of 2014? And while we’re at it, let’s take a look (a very short glance) at what my photographs looked like in 2013, when I started Sprinkle with Sage.

So: my personal favorite:

Lots of attention: Frozen Hot Chocolate: the most commented on and the most popular of 2014 by far. This was the first post I think to get accepted by foodgawker, hence the giant influx of visitors. Plus, it’s delicious.

To make: Mocha Supreme. I’ve made so many mocha things, it would not be funny if it was any less amazing. I loved making a gif with this recipe, and I considered at one point framing and hanging the photograph below.

Also a worthy mention:  Mocha Milkshake. Made with chia for thickness! So awesome.

Finally: Apple Ciderso. so. delicious.

To eat: Nectarine Crumble. Man was this good.

Also this Pumpkin Mocha Frappuccino: I made this (the hot version) more times than is proper to admit.

To make/eat: House Chocolate Chip Cookies, the best chocolate chip cookies ever ever ever. And some of my favorite photographs as well.

To photograph: This marshmallow and hot chocolate post. I loved putting this together, and let me just assure you that this is indeed the best hot chocolate you will drink.

Now I’ve bored you enough, so: in the theme of last year’s favorites, I’ve brought you a mocha. Spicy. Sweet. Hot. Yum.

A word about the recipe- I kinda love cinnamon in coffee, so I tend to add a lot more than a normal person would. One of the principles I have always stressed on this blog is that you should be able to take inspiration from my recipe, but tweak it to get just what you want 🙂

Cinnamon Mocha

In a small glass measuring cup, mix together 2 T honey, 2 t. cinnamon, and 1 T. cocoa powder. Add a dash of coconut oil, if so desired. Strain, then add coffee and milk until ya get whatcha want. (mine was about 1/2 c. coffee to 2/3 c. milk).

Bonus! Isn’t Wordle really neat? These are apparently the words I use the most on Sprinkle with Sage. Seems legit. I like it. A lot.
